Is this crew quarters, lazarette, engine room, or workshop? For us it might be considered all or some of the preceding. Right now it is going to be the workshop we always dreamed of having, with spares and supplies neatly organized below the floorboards, and a scattering of critical items like carbon fiber oars, water skis, and related cruising gear.
The workbench is two meters +/over seven feet long. It will have a sink, big vice, drill press, arbor press, belt sander/sanding disk tool, and lots of room.
There is a long storage shelf below for tool bags and supplies.
And the coolest stainless tool chest we have ever seen. It, and the adjacent trash compactor, are raised above the sole to preserve access for cleaning the bilge and to the large inventory which will be stored below the sole.
Storage is also available under the first portion of the aft deck, up to the collision bulkhead that separates the boarding platform.
Port rudder steering gear is now installed.
The quadrant is designed to allow 45 degrees of travel off center for slow speed maneuverability.
If the rudder stops ever come into play for real, the loads will be huge.
The actual steering loads at sea are light, even in heavy going, and the steering cylinder is large compared to the work it has to do.
Now a few fuel system details. There is a large day tank with a deep sump.
The genset filter left and day tank polishing set right.
Transfer and fuel polishing pumps.
Fuel pump selector switches and manual controls.
Starboard engine fuel filters.
Finally, the fuel supply and return manifold.
